Get ready because 2019 will be here before we know it, which means it’s time for all  new movies. Next year will be a good year for cinema-goers because there are several new releases such as “Shazam!” and “Gemini Man.” Not only will there be these new films to look forward to, there’s going to be sequels. Many sequels. Usually people think that sequels can never be better than the first movie itself, but there’s four that might be able to change those minds who think that.  

Disney Studios has announced that there will be a “Frozen 2” which will release in Nov. 2019. . The plot is unknown as of right now, but Elsa is rumored to receive a female love interest in the upcoming film. This would be Disney’s first ever openly-gay princess. Though that’s just a rumor, you might have to watch the movie to see if it’s true. Also the soundtrack is what most fans can’t wait to hear.

“I want to know what’s going to be the new ‘Let it Go’ or even what’s the new ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ sophomore Hannah Kimble said.

The entire original cast of “Frozen” will be returning for this movie, with even some new cast members. From kids to adults many can’t wait to see the frozen princess in this new film.

Creepy clown Pennywise makes his chilling return on Sept. 6 for “It: Chapter Two.” This sequel to 2017’s hit thriller “It” finds the kids from the Loser’s Club all grown up 27 years later. This movie is going to focus on the first film’s childhood friends, who return to confront the supernatural killer who has tormented them years earlier. If you loved the first movie than hopefully this next chapter is as thrilling as the first.

Now, Marvel Studios and Sony didn’t waste any time when it came to announce a sequel for 2017’s superhero swinger “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Regardless of what happened in “Avengers: Infinity War,” it’s safe to say that Peter Parker is far from home.  “Spider-Man: Far From Home” will bring Spidey back on July 19, but in a new location, as he travels to Europe for a class trip. Spider-Man will have some animal companionship on July 19; on the same day “Homecoming” swings into town, the new live-action version of “The Lion King” is set to roar into theaters as well. Director and Producer Jon Favreau shocked audiences by announcing this remake of the 1994 animated Disney classic. Viewers are already pleased with the teaser. Social media started buzzing after the trailer was released because Beyonce, who we all know and love, will be the voice of Nala, the main female lead.

“‘ The Lion King’ was the best movie to watch growing up as a kid,” junior Joe Gagliano said. “I can’t wait to see what it’s going to look like as a live-action movie.”

This 1994 classic is going to have a new year spin on it and many hope that it won’t disappoint.

Those were just some of the sequels that are planning to be released next year and so many more  movies to come out next year. From animation to live-action, 2019, from the looks of it, is going to be packed with delight.
